The Lounge

Views to JFK from the 86th floor of One World Trade Center

Come check in to the TWA lounge on the 86th floor of One World Trade Center. Our viewing platform inspired by the Swinging Sixties has panoramic vistas from Manhattan to John F. Kennedy International Airport 12 miles to the east—and summons the spirit and glamour of the Jet Age. Can we offer you a beverage? Enjoy a refreshment from our TAB and Champagne fridge and wander across original, Eero Saarinen-designed penny tile flooring from the TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport, savoring extraordinary 180-degree views over Manhattan and discovering our collection of vintage TWA hostess uniforms, artifacts, and memorabilia.

Come visit the lounge and discover design inspired by the TWA Flight Center:
